DUP Mid Ulster MLA and Policing Board Member attended the opening today in Desertcreat, of the news NIFRS Learning and Development Centre.

“The opening of the new Fire & Rescue Service (NIFRS) Learning & Development Centre today is welcome. It now provides our Firefighters with state of the art facilities to build and develop skills in often challenging and difficult incidents.
This new £4.8million Tactical Firefighting Facility, which boasts of a dedicated ‘live fire’ training facility, will enable the development of current and future generations of Firefighters to help deliver a safer community in Northern Ireland. I look forward to the future phases of this project.
